The Dry Eye Puzzle: Causes and Consequences

A happy woman after undergoing dry eye treatment

Dry eyes can disrupt your life, hindering your ability to enjoy everyday activities. When your eyes don’t produce enough tears or if the tears evaporate too quickly, it leads to uncomfortable symptoms such as:

  • Itching and irritation
  • Redness and inflammation
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Blurred vision
  • Gritty or sandy sensation
  • Excessive tearing due to compensatory responses

Dry eyes can result from various factors, including aging, hormonal changes, certain medications, environmental conditions, and underlying medical conditions. Understanding the root cause is crucial to develop an effective treatment plan.

Causes of Dry Eye

Many things can cause dry eye. Living in Las Vegas, an arid desert certainly doesn’t help. Other factors include aging, hydration status, use of certain medications, and having a history of autoimmune diseases (like rheumatoid arthritis or lupus). Anything that causes inflammation around the eyes usually makes dry eye worse.

Sometimes the eyes may feel like they are dry, but in reality some other condition is causing them to feel that way. In Las Vegas, we’ve observed that about half of all symptom-driven cases of “dry eye” are not dry eye at all, but rather other some other treatable condition. Common examples of these other conditions include blepharitis (inflammation of the eyelids from various causes), rosacea, eyelid malfunctions, allergy, and overuse of eyedrops.

Treating Dry Eyes

While artificial tears can provide temporary relief for typical dry eye, there are advanced treatments available to address the underlying causes and provide lasting relief. At Brimhall Eye, we offer a range of effective options beyond artificial tears.

One such treatment is the use of punctal plugs, which are small, biocompatible devices inserted into the drainage ducts of the eyes. These plugs help retain natural tears on the surface of the eyes, enhancing lubrication and relieving dry eye symptoms. Additionally, medicated eye drops like Restasis, Cecua, or Xiidra may be recommended in certain cases to target specific underlying conditions contributing to dry eye.

We understand that not all cases of “dry eye” in Las Vegas are actually true dry eye. Some individuals may be experiencing symptoms that mimic dry eye but are caused by other conditions. That’s why our experienced team emphasizes the importance of accurate diagnosis. Through comprehensive evaluation and diagnostic tests, we can identify the true root cause of your symptoms and provide you with tailored treatment options that address your specific condition.

At Brimhall Eye, we are dedicated to providing personalized care and effective treatments for lasting dry eye relief. Schedule a consultation with our experienced team to explore the advanced treatment options available to you.

I love and appreciate having Dr. Brimhall as my eye doctor. I have been his patient since we moved to Las Vegas some 10 years ago. His bed-side manners, so to speak, is one of the reasons I continue to go to him and I place my complete confidence in him knowing that the well being of my eyes is his primary concern.
